Should the public know if a convicted animal abuser lives or works next door? A bill before the California legislature would require adults convicted of felony animal abuse to register with local law enforcement; their names would be placed in a database similar to the national sex offenders’ registry. Tennessee, Louisiana, and New York are also considering animal-abuse registries.

“We’re trying to reduce risk,” says Stephan Otto of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, noting that animal abusers are five times more likely to commit violent crimes against humans and four times more likely to commit property crimes than those without a history of violence against animals.

Yes!! It's a crime! Why should they get away with it? “…animal abusers are five times more likely to commit violent crimes against humans and four times more likely to commit property crimes than those without a history of violence against animals.” Yes!!

Any body, agency or entity should most definitely have to register as a criminal abuser! They are violent people and they know no boundaries for causing pain according to experience and studies. People that look the other way are just as guilty and sickening. They are guilty by association and not reporting such horrific behavior. Animal abusers are closet psychosis waiting to hurt anything…. YES, LIST THEIR SICK SELVES JUST LIKE SEX OFFENDERS!
